The greenhouse is getting fired up the first week of March! I just mailed out the seed order and am so excited to get my hands back in the soil and my body under some greenhouse sunshine.
The farm has not been growing since Irene came through in late August and wiped us out for the season. It was actually unknown how we were even going to continue after such loss. But, Small Step is full throttle for 2012! Thank you to the Mad River Valley Community Fund, the Vermont Community Foundation and NOFA-VT for organizing all of the wonderful donations that were given! We are still in a tough position with loss. Almost all materials, tools, equipment and some infrastructure must be replaced. It will be a busy spring setting up and trying to fast track money coming in. We are organizing an early-summer farm dinner and fundraiser to help raise money for replacing specific losses that flood donations did not cover, more information to come in the spring.
